Behind the Scenes Design
Note from Don. I very much like the appearance of this kitchen. For the cabinets inside the island and along the floor of the kitchen, we'd want shelves that pull/slide out so everything inside can be reached easily. We really don't need island seating. Not having it will give us much needed cabinet space. I would also replace the flooring in this picture with the flooring I liked in another picture.
Note from Don. I like that this kitchen has more color than just white and grey. We don't want open shelving. If the island is going to have seating, I want high quality, wide, cushioned seating that's comfortable to sit on. The lights above the island are similar to other lights Jackie and I have seen that we both like. Stainless steel appliances ae preferred.
Note from Don. I'm tall and don't like microwaves inside the island. I would rather have the island top be a dark color than have the sides of the island be a different color than the other cabinets. My preference is that the cabinets be some shade of white. I haven't seen many/any non-white painted cabinets that I liked. I also prefer that all the kitchen countertops be the same color
